LEHI, Utah, and LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Waystar Technologies, Inc., a provider of leading healthcare payment technology, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Healthcare Payments Innovation Award” in the annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global digital health and medical technology market. This marks the third consecutive year Waystar has won a MedTech Breakthrough award, repeating 2023’s honor as the “Healthcare Payments Innovation Award” winner and following its 2022 recognition as “Best New Technology Solution for Healthcare Payments.”

Waystar provides healthcare organizations with mission-critical, cloud-based software that simplifies healthcare payments, enabling clients to prioritize patient care and optimize their financial performance.

Clients value Waystar’s unique capabilities and client support, evidenced by its Net Promoter Score of 74 and by its #1 rank versus competitors in the percentage of clients indicating the highest level of satisfaction, based on a third-party survey. As a testament to Waystar’s commitment to simplifying healthcare payments, it launched an Accelerated Implementation Program immediately following a recent cybersecurity incident to provide healthcare organizations expedited access to revenue cycle management software – enabling 30K+ providers to restore operations and resume cashflow quickly.

“The healthcare payment ecosystem is highly complex with an annual cost of wasteful spending in the billions, and most systems use four or more software vendors for RCM and administrative functions,” said Steve Johansson, Managing Director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Waystar is addressing these complexities head on, with breakthrough software that helps healthcare organizations while ensuring patients receive a modern, transparent, and consumer-friendly financial experience. We’re thrilled to congratulate the Waystar team as our ‘Healthcare Payments Innovation Award’ winner for 2024.”
